Nominees FAPA 2018

The competition has been very tough this year and despite theΒ  fact that most of my work had been nominated or qualified into finals no stand on the podium have been announced. However I got the email today from another event that 9 of 12 photos have been qualified for finals, so I still hope there might be a chance for the winner πŸ™‚

Here now you can see some photos that I had been keeping hidden from public view πŸ™‚

For those whom already follow my work on FB or Instagram this work and story might be familiar, however if some you missed it here it is. Hope you will enjoy this piece of work.

I have kept this photo hidden for the last 8 months as I wanted to keep it for certain photo competition and sometimes terms and conditions require to submit only work that never was published in any media. Well that contest didn’t go successful for my work this year. However I can show it off to the world ☺ ❀ πŸ“· and wait for other competitions results πŸ™‚

This time for a change I would like to show a few photos I had an honor to take last weekend in Dublin. Beautiful moments of a little Clara











The Mask

I know I know, it’s an easter time and there should be flowers, eggs, food, bunnies and whatever else people relate it to this time of the year. Ah well I would like to show a different painting today. A bit messy to make but still as for the first timer Im glad with the results. Big thanks to the model for willing to get this stuff on her face πŸ˜€

The Opportunity

Last Thursday I had a honor to work with Sierra who comes from US and is recently visiting Ireland… Despite the temperatures and the hard time she is going through right now, this woman went through it all and we had done a lot. We tried to funnel all emotions she is carrying into our work.Β  I wish to have more opportunities like this in the future.

It’s official the winter doesn’t want to leave us this year so quickly…. StartedΒ  flurrying again and it’s supposed to be more over the next 24h… I remember temperatures around 18 deg of C in March but not this weekend πŸ™‚Β  Ah well, want can we do… Well, Alina and I came up with this while there are thousands of daffodils in parks already πŸ™‚ Oh, and Happy St Patrick’s Day πŸ™‚

While the snow is still lingering in the higher uplands, I asked Ran if she’d be interested in a collab. I also mentioned that is going to be cold πŸ™‚ Well, she said yes so there we went there last Thursday…
